Praise for Partain's CD

Music professor Gregory Partain’s second CD of solo piano music, Gregory Partain, piano, Volume II, has received many glowing reviews since its release last year. Here are a few excerpts:

“…some of the best Scarlatti I’ve ever heard…13 minutes of stunning playing—crisp, clear, articulated, and phrased. There is balance and rhythmic vitality in every measure. Dare I say it, these approach the same level as Horowitz’s legendary recordings…”
American Record Guide, November/December 2007

“Gregory Partain is a gifted pianist, and every item intelligently and sympathetically played. Partain’s strengths show to best advantage in the group of Scarlatti Sonatas, especially the beautifully judged account of the pensive F minor, and in a thoughtful, sensitively shaped and expressive rendition of Brahms’ rarely heard Original Theme variations, to which Partain imparts a cumulative power I have seldom heard brought out to such vivid effect.”
BBC Music Magazine, November 2007

“…this album is an excellent introduction to an artist whose career should be watched with anticipation.”
All Music Guide, October 2007
